Latte Greetings Card
Hello There! On today's blog I would like to share another Coffee Greetings card featuring once again My Monthly Hero card kit by Hero Arts. Also, in this card I am Sharing how I created my own background using one of the stamps from the set. Isn't it fun how a very small stamp can do the actual work for the whole card panel? This is my first time trying this technique. So Let's Get Started!
stamp and die set
To, begin with I started by stamping the coffee cups with Extreme Black Ink by MFTS in a piece of 80lb Neenah White cardstock. Just, like I did for my previous cards. I waited a few minutes for the ink to dry out before the coloring. In the meantime I started the stamping.
For the stamping, I placed the stamp on an acrylic block and I inked it up with Soft Pool Ink Pad by Hero Arts. I started by stamping right in the middle of a 80lb Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card panel the first image. Then, I stamped 2 more in each side of the row. After, the first row was completed. I started the stamping by slightly shifting the sequence of the image for the next row on the top and bottom as you can see above. So, I kept stamping following the same pattern until I covered the card panel up thus creating the background for the card.
Embossing and Coloring
For the embossing, I heat embossed the whipped topping cream image with the heat embossing pad and the white puff embossing powder.
Then, for the coloring I kept it pretty simple using Copic alcohol Markers.

Lastly, for the layout. I stared by adhering the backed of one the coffee cups with liquid glue to the card panel. Then, I adhered the second with foam tape. Followed by the whipped topping cream. I adhered them in the same way one with liquid glue and the second with foam tape with a hint of liquid glue on the second just to reinforce the part on top of the coffee. Last but not least, I stamped one of the sentiments from the stamp set and I adhered the card panel to a 110lb Classic Crest Solar White card base.
At this point, I thought that my card was completed. But, I ended up adhering a few little bitty rainstones here and there for a pop of shine as embellishments.
Your imagination is Your limit.
I hope you get Inspired and give this design a try! Just keep in mind, that you can create the same design with any combination of ink colors and stamp sets.
Thank You, your time is valuable. Don't forget to spread kindness, Today and Always.
